If you reclassify this as an invertebrate rather than 'other organism' the iSpot Likely ID feature will work.

This is one of those cases where Admin should take an Active interest - there are MANY others.
It is quite likely that Brian, the poster, has left the Arena, so the Grouping will remain until someone force-changes it.
The post is doubly interesting to me, in that it is a UK Community Post, yet is an overseas sighting, like all Issoria lathonia in iSpot (I think).
For those who collate such records it must be exciting at first glance, then disappointing! NBN shows only 5 UK records.

It's old

so I think it preceded communities existing so has landed in the UK&I one by default. Fortunately for the future such things should go to the correct 'global' location.

Looks like someone has been going through moving a lot of these 'other organism' posts to the correct groups. The iSpot team used to do this before iSpot got to busy for it to be practical - perhaps they've found some resource.

little benefit

Yes, it's happened a lot recently. I think there might be an 'autofix' trawling for this sort of problem. It can be fixed by us, by simply adding an new ID, even an identical one seems to trigger a Group change. But it's hardly worth it when there are agreements with the old ID. Only fairly modern posts seem to benefit from such treatment.
Good wishes

No matter

Then there may be a modern 'glitch' as was posted in June 2013 when I could hardly make a UK&I post owing to the 'Global Bug'.
Many foreign posts, pre 2013, are still Global ones.

None of this stuff matters much just now because the new iSpot Format is due, UK and Global filtering has been strengthened somewhat and the Global Bug has not infected the test site, which looks good.
